news broke of a another shooting in california. in the month 28 precious moments and six adults were taken away from us as sandy the elementary school. more than 900 of our fellow americans have died at the hands of 900. this has happened within the past month. everyday we wait and this number keeps growing. i am putting forth a set of proposals based upon the work of joe's task force. in the days ahead i intend to use any way that i can to make it reality. while there is no law or set of laws that can prevent any senseless act of violence.
9:03am
no piece of legislation can stop or prevent every tragedy or every act of evil from happening if there is even one thing that we can do to reduce this violence if there is either one like that we can say then we have had an obligation to try area >> i will do my part. as soon as i am finished speaking i was set at the desk and i will sign a directive to give law- enforcement, schools, health officials some of the tolls that they need to reduce gun violence gripping will make it easier to keep guns out of hands of criminals. what the strength of our background checks. we will have to have schools hire more resource officers. will have to develop a more emergency plan. i want to make sure that mental health companies understand
9:04am
there options. someone with a mental illness is far more likely to be a victim than the perpetrator. wow year after year, those will oppose even modest gun safety measures have threatened to defund medical research of the cause of gun violence. i will direct the center of disease control to study the best way to reduce this. congress should fund this perry e ignorance. we do not benefit from not knowing that science of this academic of violence. days are 23 actions that i am announcing. but as important as these are. there are no substitute for members of congress. they
9:05am
have to make a real difference. congress has to act. congress must act soon. i am calling on congress to pass some proposals right away. first, it is time for congress to have a universal ban kron check done on anyone who wants to buy a weapon perry . >> the law already requires a license and dealers to run background checks. this kept 1.5 million people from getting a gun. it is hard to enforce those laws when there are 40 percent of all gun purchases adult without a background check. is not smart and it is not fair to respondif you want to buy a gund
9:06am
it uses medleys have to show that you're not a felon or someone who is prohibited from buying one perry ed an overwhelming majority of americans agreed that a universal back from check should be done. more than 70% from the national rifle association also agrees. there is no reason that we cannot do this. congress should restore a ban on military-style rifles. this a have a limit on how many of those magazines you can order as well. the top of the assault rifle that was used and all russia, compelled wood magazines had one purpose. this was a pop ball as many bullets as possible. they want to do as
9:07am
much saddam is using bullets that were designed to. this was what was allowed to allow this guy to shoot 70 people. he killed 12 people in a matter of minutes. what is that were designed for the puerto war had no place in a movie theater. the majority of americans agree. by the way so did ronald reagan. he was one of the ones who wrote to up congress and 1994 to urge them to listen to the american public and to the law-enforcement command is and support a ban on the manufacturing of assault rifles. >> finally, congress needs to help rather than hinder law enforcement from the one
9:08am
their jobs. wish to get tougher on people by the sun's just to sell them to criminal spread we should severely punish anyone who helps them to do this. congress has not come from the bureau of tobacco and alcohol and six shares this should come from todd jones who has been acting in i will be it nominated him for the post. s and a time when budget cuts are forcing companies to reduce their police force wish to put more cops back on the job and back on the streets. let me be absolutely clear like most americans are believed that the second and mimic guarantees you to bear arms.
9:09am
i do respect this and the rights of hunters. there are millions of law-abiding gun owners. they use this for hunting, sports, protection, and for collection. most adult owners believe that we can respect the second a mimic what keeping a few of them from inflicting harm on others. i believe most of them agree that americans should work harder to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. we will have fewer tragedies like the one that have been in newtown, connecticut. these are common-sense measures and they have the support of the american people. this does not made any of this will be easy. if there were this easy then we would
9:10am
already have these other projects. moreover our fellow americans might still be alive celebrating their birthdays, holidays, graduations. it will be difficult and there will be special interest lobbyists that will have an all out on delivery. this is not because this is true but because they want to have fair or revenue for themselves. behind the scene that will do everything that they can to block any common-sense reform and they do not doing anything to change. >> the only way that will give the changes as their audience and their membership--this time and we
9:11am
must do something to protect our community and our children. i will put everything that i have and so would joe but i tell you that still we can change is since the american people demanded. by the way this does not mean that only certain parts of the country can do it. we will need voices to be heard and all the areas. we especially need
